Daily newspapers report that the Albin Kurti-led Vetëvendosja Movement
has launched a new campaign – the call to Kosovar citizens to boycott
products from Serbia.
Koha Ditore quotes members of the Vetëvendosja as saying that the
campaign will last until Serbia gives up on Kosovo, admits the crimes
it has committed and pays for the damage it has inflicted.
The dailies also report that the movement leader Albin Kurti gave a press
conference where he said that the campaign is aimed at promoting local
products, “something that UNMIK and the Kosovar institutions have failed to do.”
Koha Ditore also notes that the Kosovo Chamber of Commerce assesses as
positive the campaign, although it says that it has more of a political than an
economic character. “Such a thing [the campaign] will only stimulate local
products,” said a senior official of the Chamber of Commerce.
